Behind the Signature: Carol Wallgren
By: Anne Papineau, Journal staff writer
A visit with the Journal’s frequent letter contributors. Lives in: Auburn since 1964. “My husband and I bought our first home in beautiful Aeolia Heights. I?love the parks and it was great for our son growing up. Auburn was a far cry from San Francisco in 1964, where I was raised. It was quite an adjustment. I went to Sierra College as an adult and later to Sac State when I got my B.A.” Favorite topics: “I sort of fell into letter writing because I like to write and have always been sort of outspoken. I am interested in what is going on in the world and like to be engaged in the conversation.” Does for fun: “I like to shop the thrift stores, especially Hospice Thrift Store where I am a weekly volunteer.” Most recent letter: “U.S. is on the right side of history,” May 27.
